Dowry in Marriages

Dowry is a very controversial aspect of a marriage. Dowry comprises the gifts, cash, valuable items, furniture , jewellery and other important items that a girl receives as a gift from her parents and relatives. Since in India the girl does not have any ancestral rights to parental property the dowry is given to girl as "streedhan" by her parents.

The custom of dowry has been misused by the family of the groom in India. In most cases the boy's family keeps too high demands for dowry, which is used by the boys family for their own use.
The demand for dowry often continues even after marriage and has caused too many marital disputes.

Think wisely before marriage

Marriage is a social bond which has strong foundations and the decision to get married should only be taken by the concerned boy and girl. Many a times boy and girl decide to get married due to family wishes and external pressures. Marriage is a long term commitment and anybody who is thinking of getting married should take this decision wisely.

Many a times a boy or girl are forced into marriage because of social pressure. This is completely wrong. Only when a person is mentally prepared about the different aspects of marriage one should take the plunge. Marriage requires lot of responsibility from both the partners and requires lot of adjustments.

Easy Marriage Registration for Couples going aborad

To make it easier for couples to get their marriages registered before going abroad, the government proposes to make the procedure simple and quick by providing them an additional option through changes in the existing law.

The law ministry is giving final touches to its note,
which seeks to amend the four decade-old Births and Deaths Registration Act, 1969, by including the registration of marriages in it.
The ministry is set to make its recommendation to the cabinet, with a new option to allow registration of marriages without mentioning the religion, in addition to the existing practice of religion based certificate.
Couples who wish to register under the Hindu Marriage Act will be free to do so, and those marrying outside their religions or against the wishes of their families will continue to have the option of registering under the Special Marriage Act. The ministry is proposing an additional option for "quick and religion neutral" marriage registrations.
The proposal is based on the fact that infrastructure for the registration of births and deaths is already available and only addition of marriage registration to this law is required.
"This step will allow couples to get registered without mentioning their religion on the certificates," said a ministry official.
"It has been pointed out that around five million Sikh NRIs face problems abroad as their marriage certificates are made under the Hindu marriage law. Many countries recognise Sikhism as a separate religion and this leaves them in an awkward situation," the official said.
The move also likely to benefit Jains and Buddhists, who are issued certificates under the Hindu law. But the ministry is opposed to accepting demands from individual religions to make changes in the marriage registration law.

Commitement and Marriage

Almost every body who has been in a serious romantic relationship knows the passion and excitement early on often fades over time. When the romance ceases, many young couples break up. So how do some couples manage to stay together for a long time? Is it because they are lucky or have a secret to making love last forever? No. Couples that stay together know it takes more than love to make a marriage work. They know relationships go through ups and downs and that some days it is hard to be in love. On those bad days, couples manage to stay together because they are also committed to each other.
